By far one of the best new actors. I hope to see him in hundreds of more films. He is now my favorite actor by far!! My favorite role he has played is Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness

Agreed, although I like his role in Sherlock I have to say my favorite role with him would be Khan (i like his role in ''The Imatation Game'' as well but not to the point of noting it as one of my favorites)
